    Bad To The Bone

    Urban Enemies 5 Stars for the book as a whole. This is a collection of some of the most bad guys you will ever meet. I wasn't sure what to expect from this collection since it is about the bad guys of books we've read where we've rooted for the good guy. But I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed reading about them. I wrote several reviews on individual books but it looked to be getting too long of a review so I also want to say for to others and overall, this was a delight to read. Even if there's one or two you don't care for as much as the others, there's enough great ones to make it worth the purchase. The Naughtiest Cherub by Kevin Hearne 5 Stars I haven't read any of this author's work, but I do have him on my TBR list. After reading this story, I will be sure to bump him to the top. This is my favorite kind of book. I loved the part about the ice blade the Yetis made and I can't wait to read the story it referred to. Even though the character in this book is a villain, he was so very interesting! Even Hand by Jim Butcher 5 Stars This is another author I've heard so much about and I'm ashamed to say that I still haven't tried his work until now. I couldn't help but like John Marcone. He risked so much for saving a young lady and child. Even lost a lot. I got such a great taste for this world. I love how it has vampires, a Valkyrie, and my favorite the Fae. I really liked Gard and hope she is in all his books. This author is great at packing in such an intense world in a short story and still having great quality. I loved it! Hounded by Kelly Armstrong 3 Stars This story was ok. I liked the concept but I think I found the characters so annoying that I was just glad when it was over. I felt so sorry for the poor dog. Nigsu Ga Tesgu by Jeff Somers 3 Stars This wasn't really my cup of tea. I would probably like a full book that has this villain in it. The writing was beautiful and almost poetic. The villain was so bad and terrible. But very clever. Urban Enemies 5 Stars for the book as a whole. I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    The other side of the story

    A collection of delightfully dark stories that includes some of my favourite bad guys, as well as some that are new to me. These stories give clues to their motivations, and while some of these villains may have redeeming features, not all of them do. Although they are not exactly the things happy endings are made of, many of these stories left me wanting to read - or re-read - the original series, to consider them in light of these revelations. I was provided a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in return for an honest review.
